Congregational Affirmation of Faith

I. The Word of God

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31,32; John 20:31; Acts 20:32

Good Cheer

Published by: Sam Crabtree
January 2, 2015

A murmuring, grumbling, complaining spirit and true cheerfulness cannot simultaneously govern a heart. Which is governing will generally show in countenance and tone of voice. A mere look on the face or edge in the voice will betray it.

Forced cheerfulness does not spring up freely from a healthy heart. Genuine good cheer only rises from a heart truly at rest in God, satisfied with his promises and faithfulness to them.

God rest ye merry gentlemen and women, let nothing you dismay.

Run Like You’re …

Published by: Sam Crabtree
August 8, 2014

Jesse Harms’ coach said to him, “Harms, run like you’re getting somewhere!”

In other words, don’t run aimlessly. The apostle Paul had something to say about that:

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.—1 Corinthians 9:24–26
